Connecticut sporting arms
Chris's indoor shooting range/gun shop
Silver City Sporting Arms



They might not be the best priced.. but by far the most comfortable shop.. seems like a lot of stores have cocky/arrogant people working for them and I dont like it..

Never really had a bad experience with Hoffmans. Their prices do seem to be alot better then most other places.

I hugely recommend NW Sporting Goods. The Berlinski's run a pretty good shop, and generally their prices are very good. Very nice people to deal with.

I would recommend Tactical Arms in Torrington, but man, $370-something for a Hi-point carbine? Get the F out. Every time I go in there, they seem to be okay though.

So they are NICE, but they are to EXPENSIVE.

So then are you actually reccomending them? :lol:

Hm... Actually, I would.

If anything, they seem to be the only game in town concerning NFA items, and if anything their prices seem to be generally pretty good (NFA stuff).

If you want NFA items, then I hear that they are EXCELLENT. A friend's father has bought a few suppressors from them, and from what I've heard is that they did everything in the most efficient manner possible.

Nice enough people I suppose, that gets them a recommendation :wink:

K5 Arms in Milford
Hoffman's in Newington
Delta Arsenal in Meriden

I know a lot of people have had issues with K5 and dislike them, but I know those guys well and they've always been great to me. K5 is my favorite gun shop by far!

Hoffman's has a tremendous amount of guns, ammo, and gear/accessories on display and in stock. A trip up to Newington is like being a kid in a candy shop!

I've only been to Delta Arsenal a few times, but their prices seemed really good and the guys were friendly and attentive!
